40 in the Fort
Annually, Lory State Park hosts the "40 in the Fort" Endurance Mountain Bike Race. Thousands of feet of lung-busting, leg-searing climbs and grin inducing descents make this race a great test of your physical endurance, mental toughness and mountain bike skills. The individual race is 40 miles made up of two 20 mile laps. Each lap has nearly 4,500 feet of climbing. Race divisions include Open, Sport and Singlespeed with men's and women's under and over 40 year old groups.
